Fresh Salsa & Guacamole – Vegan & Gluten Free

sg5I found new organic, gluten free corn chips at Villa today and thought I would celebrate by making my own salsa and guacamole!

Depending on how many people you want to feed, you can double or triple the recipe! This is enough for 2 people to snack.

Prepare the salsa a little before you need it so that the flavours can mix together.

For the salsa, you will need:

  • 2 super ripe tomatoes
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/4 red or yellow pepper
  • a bunch of cilantro
  • 1/4 lime
  • ground pepper
  • salt
  • ground cayenne pepper or 1 fresh Thai chili

Directions:

  1. With a sharp knife, finely chop the tomatoes and onion. Throw them into a bowl and squeeze the juice out of the lime on top.
  2. Again, you’ll want to finely chop the red or yellow pepper, and then the cilantro. I find tearing off the leaves and then hammering the crap out of it is best. You really want to get the flavours out.
  3. Add a pinch of salt and pepper, and then the spice. Adjust according to your taste buds.

For the guacamole, you will need:

  • 2 super ripe avocados
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 lime
  • salt and pepper

Directions:

  1. Cut the avocados in half and then use a spoon to scoop out the flesh. You can use a potato masher, or put these in a food processor.
  2. Dice the cloves of garlic and juice the lime into the processor.
  3. Blitz and then add your salt and pepper. Taste, and then add in extra ingredients if you require them.
